Ta mee er clashtyn shoh veih yn shenn dooinney enmyssit Caesar Cashin.
I have heard this from an old man named Caesar Cashin.

Row shiu ec y vargey
Were you at the market?

Naik shiu monney sleih
Did you see many people?

Naik shiu deiney veggey
Did you see little men

Markiagh kellagh guiy
Riding a gander?

Va mee ec y vargey
I was at the market

Honnick mee monney sleih
I saw a lot of people

Agh cha naik mee deiney veggey
But I saw no little men

Markiagh kellagh guiy
Riding a gander.
